bright fireball object

I was driving down the road coming from Carlsbad NM direction heading to Artesia, and right around mile marker 45 I seen what I though was a light tower out of place and super bright, at that moment it started to raise in elevation, it was only a 1/2 mile away so I got a good view if it.

It went up about 300feet then dimmed out like a fire burning out then 3 seconds later it lit back up and changed directions and went up another 50 feet and disappeared.
